Too often, communities don’t get the help they need. Small towns across the country try to keep their workers in jobs, raise healthy kids, and make today’s lot better than yesterday’s.
But West Virginia’s more than 1,000 towns don’t stand alone. They have the Community Design Team, an outreach of West Virginia University. When their own resources are scarce and they need people who believe in them and fresh ideas, they call this group of professors and students who use their skills to solve real problems. With their help, these residents can make their towns better than before.
